Little Falls golf course in Minnesota offering FREE MEMBERSHIP for juniors

If you are getting into golf this winter and you live in Minnesota, get yourself down to Little Falls Golf Course. You won't find a better deal for this new year.

As first reported by The Morrison County Record, Little Falls no longer charge golfers for memberships under the age of 18 to invest in the community.

The aim of this initiative is to get young people into the sport, a sport which can be unaffordable for some people. City administrator Jon Radermacher is very excited by the scheme.

"If you get people hooked on golf, or at least exposed to golf when they’re in their younger years, they’re going to come back when they’re older and capable to pay. They’re going to be future members for our course. I think, for us, that could yield some great benefits," said Radermacher.

The junior fee for under 18-year-old's used to be $200, but this along with the family membership option has also been discontinued.

Senior and resident discounts have also been removed, but the single membership prices and couple prices at Little Falls have increased to $800 and $1500 respectively.

As well as the benefit of young people, Little Falls on Edgewater Drive will offer pay raises to their employees who have seen their workload increase due to the growing demand in the sport.

Radermacher named the plan 'Radical'. Memberships are free of charge but the average green fee for 18-year-olds is $45.

"With those changes on the membership side and then the greens fees side, I think that really would set us in line for future years," Radermacher continued.

Although the Covid-19 pandemic caused much disruption to sport and live sport, golf has experienced a boom in the last 12 months with participation levels rising in both America and the United Kingdom.
